"No Firewire - No Thanks"1.0 starson by dcrigger
Pros: faster overall, best price/performance slot for most users, but...
Cons: the "hub for our digital lifestyle"? The one "for the rest of us" which doesn't connect to any but a small handful of camcorders? (listed as USB on Amazon doesn't mean they actually work with OSX) - and for audio/music people - forget about it.
Summary: Perfect for the person wanting the ultimate in style and small size, whose needs can do with out any real connectivity.... (and USB 2.0 is simply not up to external storage, video transfer, and/or audio/midi all by itself - heck, is barely qualified to do them one at a time)
Oh but wait! Isn't that why the Macbook Air is available. Without FW (or a express card slot) the new Macbook is less a "Macbook Pro Lite" than a Macbook Air Fat.
